What Are The Advantages Of A Car Loan?

If you want full control of your driving habits, an auto loan is probably the way to go. Why? Because once your loan is paid off, you'll own your car, truck or SUV outright.

Loan terms differ from lease terms in that drivers aren't held to mileage restrictions and strict maintenance policies. So, long road trips are never out of the question. Since you won't be penalized for wear and tear, off-roading is allowed as well, and let's face it – if you're driving a new Jeep Wrangler or Dodge RAM 1500 Rebel, you're going to want to play in the mud.

Of course, you're also free to customize your vehicle as well, which you'll be able to afford to do since you'll be payment free once you pay off your car loan. You can also apply for auto loans on any of our used cars and Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. Speak with our financial advisors at your hometown car dealership in Columbus and find out if a car loan is right for you. Visit Crown Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Dublin today.

Does A Car Lease Provide Any Benefits?

There are many aspects of a car lease that appeal to certain car buyers. One of the most enticing is the possibility of lower monthly payments.

When you agree to a car lease, you aren't actually agreeing to buy the vehicle – yet. The idea of a lease is for drivers to return the car, truck or SUV to the car dealer after the agreed upon time frame is complete. And since you may not be keeping the vehicle, you're only asked to pay for the depreciation of the vehicle. Say you agreed to a 3-year car lease. If you take the original price of the vehicle and subtract the projected value of the vehicle after 3 years, the difference is what you pay. This is also good for drivers who typically only use their vehicle for short commutes – why purchase a vehicle if you don't plan to use it all that much?

Car dealers usually do allow drivers to buy the vehicle once your lease is complete. However, if that sweet new Chrysler or Dodge model catches your eye, you can give the old vehicle back and lease a new vehicle.
